Blog post Checklist
Before you get started, make sure you’ve created accounts with the following websites. They will aid you in completing the steps below. Think of it as filling your blog posts SEO toolbox with all the different tools you’ll need to complete your project. Kind of like a shopping spree at Lowes,
except these sites are free!
Monetize: Ensure you have products to promote. I recommend joining these affiliate programs. They will give a wide range of items to promote so you have the ability to add product links to virtually any blog post topic. ShareASale.com, cj.com, Fiverraffiliates.com, Partner.eBay.com, amazon.com Read More
Research: You’ll need to research keywords, topics, and questions to be able to SEO your blog post. I recommend signing up with these tools for your research. Using these tools one by one will end up giving you an extensive list of keyword ideas to analyze and give you insight into your reader’s intent. Answerthepublic.com, SEO PowerSuite, Rankinity.com, Wordtracker.com, UberSuggest, Bing Webmasters, Keyword Explorer, Quora
English grammar: Your blog posts won’t go very far if readers have a hard time reading them because of grammar and spelling issues. Your free account on Grammarly will give you access to powerful free website features, and their grammar tools come as free extensions for the most popular browsers. It will work anywhere you type text. I use it for everything I write to make sure it is perfect. Create your free account here
Social Accounts: Part of the success of a blog post’s search engine optimization is its activity on popular social media platforms. Make sure you sign up for each of these popular sites. Later on, you can set up automatic posting to some of these platforms (if using a CMS) as soon as you publish your blog posts. It seems like a lot of work, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy, however, once done you will enjoy increased traffic and you’ll check another thing off the SEO checklist list. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, Instagram, Reddit, Snapchat, Tumblr, Quora
